Fastest Web Browser? Ha, ha!!!

I am sick and tired of all this crap about fastest Web browser. Really there's no such a thing! The best browser for one's computer depends a lot on the OS and hardware setup and if you want to find out what's the fastest Web browser on your setup I got a little something for you...

... Futuremark's Peacekeeper a free browser benchmark that should help you sleep better from now on. No it doesn't come with any sleeping pills it only comes with some results to compare yours with but let me warn you about one thing: before crying when you see how low are your results take a closer look at the hardware used to obtain the results available as samples all right?

Speaking for myself I was pretty happy to notice that my old Athlon X2 4000+ Brisbane processor isn't that slow as I expected when compared to the much powerful Phenom II X4 940 - at least when it comes to rendering Web pages since I have no doubt it will get a serious beating in various scenarios that involve a lot of multitasking! ;)

These being said I hardly wait to hear about your results! In my case I only messed with Opera 10.60 Chrome 5 and IE 8 obtaining the following results: 4054 3781 548. These being said the fastest Web browser on my computer is Opera without a single doubt. Now tell me about yours and make me upgrade my hardware even faster than I had in mind! :P
